What a great stuff.


Partick Baum is ill and doesn’t train in Düsseldorf anymore and Bastian Steger is now 35 and not as good as with 28 which is normal.


What happened to Baum? So sad...


Rubbers are so much better from Chinese production, especially their forehand rubber which is only available to the Chinese National players.

Next time anybody takes interview of Dima, ask him to elaborate :)

I like how Ovcharov thinks he has it hard. He should come to my club in the middle of no where, filled with old farts playing with pimples and drinking tea. Any suggestion for improvement goes from one year and out the other. Me, Myself and the Y&T Robot. And most kids simply can't afford the fee to **** around for 2 hours, on specific days, at specific evenings (when it should be opened all the time). I miss the outdoor table tennis so much, best times when we were kids. Those innocent times, those free treasurers memories

At number 4 in the world, couldn't you get your hands on a sheet of this Chinese National
rubber and get Donic to make one for you? Is their rubber that much better?

That idea is not new. Donic had that kinda idea years ago. Ever heard of MS Traction Pro? Before they tried that with the akkadi taichi...
And still not the same as H3N. :p

A new Japanese company is producing a new good plastic ball, we used it at the European championship.
Is he talking about the Nittaku Premium 40+ balls?

Thanks fanTT :)!
Because I remember the match Ovtcharov vs Mizutani in the World Tour Grand Finale 2015, where Ovtcharov was "clearly not amused" (put something more appropriate here) about the balls ;).

So, there "is" a good plastic ball outer there!

How can we tell Dima that he can actually order an H3N from http://ttnpp.com ? :)
